Hayagreeva Maddi ~ Navratri Special Dishes – Day 3

Hayagreeva Maddi

Hayagreeva or Hayagreeva Maddi is an easy and traditional Karnataka sweet. When I was doing the Udipi Cuisine, I remember reading about it while planning for Udupi Thali and then realised its very much the same like the Poli purnam we make. Once the neivedyam is offered, I always end up eating the filling as such. However, the difference in this making is that, the Hayagreeva is in more of liquid state with ghee and nuts added. Some even make it more of a mash and make it as a halwa. This is supposed to be a popular Madhwa Brahmin Udupi.

I had plans of making a chana dal sweet sundal and then suddenly remembered reading about this Haygreeva and googled it. I came across many sites that confirmed that I was on the right recipe. This surely makes a quick and delicious neivedyam for Navratri today.
